We could offer a method to copy columns to other storage models, or move them to other storage models. What would be a good way to implement this? We could offer a drag-and-drop-option, or we could feature a menu arrow with a list of advanced operations. @tobiasschutter, what do you think?

There is a work around in which you can accomplish this already, but it's not very user friendly. You can export to a json file and change the first json key to another storage model. For example you can change "post" to "page" and re-import the json file.

If we want a better UX I would suggest an advanced tab with a dropdown menu to clone from/to another storage model. This cloning process should also filter out al the non supported columns for that particular storage model.

In addition to copying an entire column set, if you could extend the functionality of the clone feature for a particular column to be able to not only duplicate it within the current post type, but also to another post type, that would be excellent.

This would add too much complexity to the UI, and the use cases are too limited. Therefor we rejected this feature.
